Even as a child I always suffered from a stomach ache. During my teenage years, I was diagnosed with a spastic colon. The advice I was offered: Eat more whole grain bread and drink a lot of water. There is not a lot more you could do, is what the doctor said. If I had known what I do now, it would have saved me a lot of pain.
From fascinated patient to cum laude graduate specialist
In 2015 I was suffering from a severe burn-out. I have drastically turned my life around. I quit my job and decided to do some research into nutrition and health. I became so fascinated that I decided to go back to university. Within 4 years I graduated cum laude from the HBO study program Basic Medical Knowledge and the study program Orthomolecular Epiphysiological therapist. In 2020 I will graduate as Epiphysiologist.
“Eat more whole grain bread and drink a lot of water. If I had known what I do now, it would have saved me a lot of pain……”
I now, know what is going wrong and how to fix it.
I know so much about the biochemistry of the human body. Where it can go wrong, but more important: how to solve the problem. As a therapist, I am guiding people with intestinal complaints for more than two years. Almost all success stories. At IBD Free Life I am a consultant but I am also the interpreter of the blood and stool tests.
Woman on a mission
I meet Jeroen during the study program Epiphysiology. We decided to combine our knowledge and experience. That is how IBD Free Life was born. Our goal? Reducing the number of people with intestinal complaints drastically. (1 in 4 people in the Netherlands)
